Mortal Mind’s 17 non- appearances in Chapters 2 and 3, of Science and Health

Copied in order of appearance in the text, according to the authorized Concordance.

First, I present it line by line in this post. Next, I hope to discuss some of these statements for what they reveal about Mary Baker Eddy’s “Theory of Mortal Mind”.

The 1st non-appearance of mortal mind From Chapter 2: Atonement:

  1. Had his origin and birth been wholly apart from mortal mind, Jesus would not have been appreciable to mortal mind as “the way”.

The 16 non-appearance of mortal mind in Chapter 3: Christian Science vs Spiritualism:

  1. Thus you learn that these also are images, which mortal mind holds and evolves, and which stimulate mind, life, and intelligence.
  2. From dreams also you learn that neither mortal mind or matter is the image and likeness of God, and that Immortal Mind is not in matter.
  3. Error brings its own self-destruction both here and here after, for mortal mind creates its own physical conditions.
  4. They are the falsities of sense, the changing deflections of mortal mind; they are not the eternal realities of Mind.
  5.  Even planchette- the French toy which years ago pleased so many people- attested the control of mortal mind over its substratum, called matter.
  6.  It is mortal mind which convulses its substratum, matter. These movements arise from the volition of human belief, but they are neither scientific nor rational.
  7.  Mortal mind produces table tipping as certainly as table setting, and believes that this wonder emanates from spirits and electricity.
  8.  The act of reading mortal mind investigates and touches only human beliefs.
  9. Jesus knew as others did not, that it was not matter, but mortal mind whose touch called for aid.
  10. Haunted houses, ghostly voices, unusual noises, and apparitions brought out in dark séances either involve feats by tricksters, or they are images and sounds evolved involuntarily by mortal mind.
  11.  Mortal mind sees what it believes as certainly as it believes what it sees.
  12.  The Scotch call such vision “Second sight” when really it is first sight instead of second for it presents primal facts to mortal mind.
  13.  The strong impressions produced on mortal mind by friendship or any intense feeling are lasting, and mind-readers can perceive and reproduce these impressions.
  14. Our master read mortal mind on a scientific basis, that of the omnipresence of Mind.
  15. The effect of his mind was always to heal and to save, and this is the only genuine science of reading mortal mind.
  16.  In reality, the more closely error resembles truth and so-called matter resembles its essence mortal mind, the more impotent Error becomes as a belief.
